2023 MLK Freedom Bus Tour
November 13-17, 2023
Costs: $450/person (covers costs of travel, hotel stay, and museum admissions). Food not included.
Participants engage in a week-long journey exploring iconic human and civil rights spaces in Memphis, Birmingham, Montgomery and Selma. In addition to museums in most of the cities, we also visit the Lorraine Motel in Memphis; the 16th
Street Baptist Church and Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham; the Equal Justice Initiative’s new Lynching Memorial in Montgomery; and the iconic Edmund Pettus Bridge and Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, among other interesting sites. This extraordinary pilgrimage satiates the participants’ quest for greater meaning as we contemplate the cornerstones of democracy.
We start the trip from Allen College in Waterloo on Monday (Nov 13) at 07:00, and we return to the same location on Friday night (Nov 17) by 23:00. Participants are able to leave their cars in the Allen College parking lot at no cost for the week.
